3.35/5 rDev -8.2%
On tap at the Victory Cafe, into a flared pint glass or something stupid.
Lightly hazy browned yellow. Light white head, no lacing. Nose has some cracker, grains, saison yeast and a bit of fruitiness. As a saison with mango juice added, I'm not really getting too much overt mango flavour. Taste is drying right off the bat, some yeast, grains and fruit juice along the lines of mango and citrus perhaps. Body is fairly watery, light spiciness. An OK saison, but not all that interesting. Not enough mango character either I thought.

Beau’s Wild Oats Series #20. Mango-infused saison brewed in collaboration with Le Trou du Diable from Shawinigan, QC. Bottle #0113 was packaged on May 23, 2012 (two days ago). Love the devilish Beau’s Tractor art, would buy it on a t-shirt. Chilled to about 8C, served in a wine glass.
Pours a cloudy, light orange colour. The medium-sized head burns off quickly, but it hangs around as a stringy collar throughout the glass. No lacing, but left some speckles on the glass like sugar water.
Smells very earthy, like fresh grasses and grains. The strong citrus overtone surprisingly reminds me more of pineapple than mango. There’s also a soft yeast tone and some mild floral hops.
Earthy and grainy taste with a honey-like sweetness. Again, the mango comes off more as a pineapple flavour. There is also a hint of butter.
Thin-bodied with a mild carbonation, the yeast provides a pop on the tongue. Nicely tart finish with a lemon zest note in the aftertaste.
Interesting beer, but something is holding it back. In fairness, I was expecting a deep orange, mango flavoured beer. The saison part is nice, just not sure about the added flavour.

On tap at The Only, served in a tulip. Cloudy, light pale yellow with hints of orange, ring of bubbles is all - little head for style. Served way too cold.
Nose is musty, hints of citrusy sweetness and tang, grainy and perhaps a hint of pepper. Moderate spicing, slightly herbal, quite sweet, with mango attributing to some of this. Light tart finish, slight drying - but mostly sweet. Sharp carbonation on par for style, missing a drier finish. Pretty basic, actually disappointing for the depth these 2 brewers show on their own.

Cloudy orange with a white head that is a bit fizzy and short lived for a saison. Leaves modest lacing on the glass.
Mango and orange in the nose, over a bit of earthy background. Fruit flavors of mango and orange dominate the flavor with a bit of black pepper. Crisp dry finish.
Mouthfeel and carbonation are a little light. Nice use of mango. Not spot on for a saison, but a very drinkable refreshing beer.

On tap at Bar Volo. Dirty blond appearance, virtually no head. A little funky peppery spicy nose. Smooth mouthfeel, well carbonated. A sipper, and tasty, with white pepper,a little salt, cardomon, a bit of ginger and other nondescript spices. Some chocolate malts. A tad of smoke and of booziness in the finish. Good drinkability
